awayal edmonton by kicking educated immigrants who create jobs for the rest of us out of the country. >> the united states has benefitted from the fact that capable people, whether you call that smart or whatever world you use, have wanted to come to the united states, whether it's south america, asia, europe, we have been a magnet for talent. and that's partly why, with higher defense budget, medical budget, why we can continue to be such an example. it's part of why our universities are so strong. and yet our immigration system makes it very hard for those people to come in. so somebody's being offered a job here for over $100,000, there's other jobs created around that job. you don't want to discourage a company from having to put that job -- >> do we discourage them? >> absolutely. >> how? >> you could be a student at uc, berkeley, foreign born, get this wonderful subsidized education, microsoft offers you a job for over $100,000 a year, and we have to stay if the country will keep you. and most those students are told they can't stay, get out of the united states. >> they take t

wasteful spending, we can't just cut our way to prosperity. deep indiscriminate cuts to education and training, energy and national security will cost us jobs. it will slow down our recovery. it's not the right thing to do for the economy. it's not the right thing for folks who are out there still looking for work. the good news is this doesn't have to happen. for all of the drama and disagreements we've had over the past few years, democrats and republicans have still been able to come together and cut the deficit by more than $2.5 trillion through a mix of spending cuts and higher rates on taxes for the wealthy. a balanced approach has achieved more than $2.5 trillion in deficit reduction. that's more than halfway towards the $4 trillion in deficit reduction that economists and elected officials from both parties believe is required to stabilize our debt. so we've made progress. and i still believe that we can finish the job with a balanced mix of spending cuts and more tax reform. the proposals that i put forward during the fiscal cliff negotiations in discussions with speaker

happens and your mom is old and dies and you take on that and no other education, it's kind of hard to get that person to step outside of the life and so for me that's the interesting component. now, is me being able to step in to the people's lives and can i rationalize what they do? it's hard because i have this greater knowledge but for them they live in a very insular environment and that insular environment is one that dictates to make a living and put food in their mouth and just what they're doing and kind of the problem that we have here. there's a demand in the united states for the drugs and there's a demand over there for them to survive and so that's the big picture. >> well, you know, we mentioned drugs and weapons. but what about exotic animals? how big is that industry and how can toure get a dragon? >> i can't help him facilitate anything illegal. >> come on. >> talk to him after the show. >> yeah right. okay. i mean, the thing is, i didn't realize how big the illegal animal trade is but the crime syndicates just as big if not bigger than the biggest drug syndicates in the

school operation, educators have softened the discipline code. so now students can curse at their teachers and simply get a reprimand. no suspension, just a little scolding. new york city education spokeswoman margie feinberg said new rules will keep the kids who commit low level infractions in class where they can learn from their mistakes. yeah. sure. as a former teacher, i know if the system allows students to curse out teachers in front of all students, all discipline breaks down. by the way, that's one of the reasons i said -- send my kids to catholic school in new york state. disrespect is everywhere. on the net, troubled people say the most horrendous things hiding behind their machines. on television reality program off the chart irresponsible. shows like jersey shore and this idiot thing in west virginia debase our culture all day long. the miami judge may have overreacted a bit, but he should be applauded. america has got to get back to basics. if we don't respect each other, we are headed for big trouble. i believe we are headed for big trouble. that's the memo
